"Fast & Furious 7" is getting all fancy on us.
The next installment of Universal's automotive action franchise will feature an appearance by Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, whose electro-dusted single "Fancy" has been an inescapable earworm this summer and currently holds the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
The news comes courtesy of "Fast & Furious" star Vin Diesel, who is currently on the campaign trail promoting Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy."
Azalea's name came up during an interview with France's Skyrock FM, prompting Diesel to reply, "I just worked with her two weeks ago. I guess you'll be the first person that knows this: We cast her in 'Fast & Furious 7.'"
Diesel didn't offer any specifics of Azalea's role, though he did describe it as a cameo. The actor also posted a photo of him (clad in a black tank top) and Azalea (in a pink satin racing jacket) on set via his Facebook page.
Along with Diesel and Azalea, "Fast 7" also stars the late Paul Walker, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez and Jason Statham.
With her appearance in the film, which is currently scheduled to open April 3, 2015, Azalea becomes the latest in a long line of musicians to buckle up for the series. Her predecessors include Ja Rule, Ludacris, Bow Wow and Rita Ora.
